Leonardo Project in «Qualificar para Incluir»

PORTUGAL

the project Qualificar para Incluir (Qualify to Include), Association of Social Solidarity, supports 150 children/youth aged 6-21 everyday. Their target group includes school drop-outs, young people with past drug problems, children who lost their parents or were removed from their care due to abuse/poverty/delinquency and young adults struggling with unemployment. These adolescents, share the objective of gaining formal education (at least a secondary

school diploma) seen as an indispensable tool to access other levels of education and to the job market. They all share a common painful circumstance: since the beginning of life they have suffered the lack of almost everything that is essential to learn to develop personal a social useful goals. To resist destructive psychosocial impulses, it is necessary to possess something that is worth being preserved, a respected job

and a positive identity. To alter the way of feeling, thinking and acting it is essential to promote daily and intense relationships with adults role-models, developing a sense of cooperation in the groups, build confidence and respect, making significant relationships with others, getting qualifications to gain credits in the labour market.
